This is the BEST crime show out there!
1 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have watched all of season 1 and have to say I absolutely LOVE this show! I am a big fan of crime-drama type TV (CSI, Law & Order) and this is my favorite of all of them. The filming style is so realistic and the characters are complex and multi-dimensional. I haven't seen a series this "real" since Hill Street Blues.

When we first meet the primary character, Fitch, it seems like he might spend the rest of the series as the weird, slightly off cop. I was worried the character would end up like Monk...a sort of savant with no social skills. As the episodes pass, we learn more about him and understand why he is so careful to avoid deeper connections with those around him. Layer after layer is revealed and we find an amazing example of a well-developed character.

All of the characters in this show are well crafted and all of the actors do a superb job with the roles. There are no trite plot developments...which is shocking considering how many crime drama episodes are already in existence.

I hope this series is renewed!
